In this post I’m sharing how to make Easy Country-Style Pork Ribs with BBQ and roasted garlic.


Hey Y’all! I don’t know about you friends but for some reason warmer temperatures outside get me to thinking about barbecue. We sure love a good barbecue.

Whether you’re firing up the grill, cooking over a campfire, or preparing a simple barbecue supper right in the oven…it’s all so delicious!

What to cook with ribs? How about a side of cool coleslaw, potato salad and baked beans and you’ve got yourself an amazing meal. Perhaps a few hush-puppies. Oh my….my mouth is watering now!

What are country style ribs? Country style ribs are typically pork ribs that are meatier cut from an area near the pork shoulder. They’re boneless, for the most part, and cook up melt in your mouth tender and delicious.

I almost always make country style ribs with barbecue sauce but some braise them and make a gravy sauce instead. My grandmother did the latter. Both are delicious.

I have two methods for making tender fall apart country ribs – the oven or in a foil pan over the campfire. Both work the same and a grill would also work nicely for the job. 

Let’s talk a minute about BBQ sauce. If you’ve been following  for a while then you know that I enjoy making a lot of my own sauces. I enjoy using my old fashioned barbecue sauce or Carolina gold sauce for these ribs but I’m also a fan of many store bought sauces too.

I used a sauce that I bought from a friend for these ribs, called Koss Sauce. This is not an ad, I’m just sharing a wonderful BBQ sauce that I love. You’ll love it too! A delicious blend of tangy heat and sweet flavor.

What will I need to make delicious country style ribs? You’ll only need a few simple ingredients. Country style pork ribs, roasted garlic, Kosher salt, cracked black pepper and your preferred barbecue sauce. That’s it!

Roasted garlic adds so much rich flavor to recipes! If you haven’t tried roasting your own garlic then you should give it a go. 

How do you make country style ribs tender? That’s really easy! Let them cook in a lower temperature oven for a few hours. The flavorful fat in the ribs will melt and you’ll end up with juicy tender ribs. 

How long do you bake the country style ribs? Generally it will take three to four hours.

    I just bought some country style ribs to make this recipe, but when I got home I noticed it is just a pork loin cut into “ribs”. It’s very lean, so it won’t work for this, will it. I’m so mad!

      These may work fine. Country style ribs are cut from the shoulder area and the end of the loin but they usually do have more fat. If your pork seems very lean then you don’t want to cook it for a long time because it will dry out. I hope this helps. Even if you have to wait to prepare the country style ribs it will be worth it and Memorial day weekend is coming up. Let me know how they turn out when you do. Have a great weekend.

        I am afraid I will ruin them. I want them to almost fall apart but Im afraid I’ll just dry them out. How long would you recommend?

          Try this…add a little bit of liquid (can be water or stock) to the bottom of the dish and add the seasoned ribs. Cover with foil and cook in a 325 degree oven for 2 hours, then check them (gently test with fork) and then add barbecue, cover and bake another hour. The liquid will help keep things moist.
